Frozen on splash screen - format help!!!

Hi folks,

In a nutshell - every now and again my P800 recieves a sms message, when i open the message i get a "corrupt" message on the phone, trying to do anything then results in a "corrupt" message.

So when i restart the phone it says "corrupt, formatting..." (or something like that)

BUT! - this time it starts up and freezes on the orange splash screen and i can do nothing with it - any suggestions on how to format the thing?, tried the jogdial trick with no joy, so any help would be VERY appreciated!

Cheers

Ther was a thread on here within the last day or two in which someone used the backup routine to acheive this. A quick check back should locate it. Basically they started the backup in which the phone gets rebooted and then removed it from the cradle.

Clever stuff and definitely worth a try.

Turned out it was over a week ago. How time flies when you're having fun. Or, indeed, rebuilding your development PC....again. Anyway, no guarantee 's that this is what you're looking for, but it's interesting anyway.
